Create your own merit

Never depend on the admiration of others, there is no strength in it.
— Epictetus

Personal merit cannot be derived from an external source. It is not to be found in personal associations, nor can it be found in the regard of other people. It is a fact of life that other people, even people that love you, will not necessarily agree with your ideas, understand you, or share your enthusiasms. 

Do your own useful work without regard to the honor or admiration your efforts might win from others.
— Epictetus

There is no such thing as vicarious merit.

 

Focus on your main duty

Happiness and freedom
